The Lectures

Hon. Clarence A. Buskirk last night [May 24] delivered an address at the Grand Opera House, taking as his subject, Christian Science. Jacob S. Shield, a well-known merchant of Warsaw, in introducing the lecturer said in part,—

My own case will illustrate that good must come through the study and practice of Christian Science. I was rescued from total blindness and healed of other physical difficulties which physicians were unable to cure. Born and reared in the Jewish faith, I inherited and cherished all the prejudice of my co-religionists and almost hated the name of Christ, and I was firmly impressed with the belief that Jesus was the greatest enemy of the Jew, and that the Christian world was bent upon demonstrating and exemplifying that hatred by the extermination of Israel. But the practice and study of Christian Science has proven to me beyond a doubt not only that Jesus was not our enemy but that he was the best friend the Jew ever had, and that the truth of his teachings will eventually redeem all mankind and establish that much hoped for brotherhood. Seventeen of my nearest relatives are now embracing this same Christianity and proclaiming the divinity of Christ. It is on such prima facie evidence as this, my friends, that we are willing to be adjudged.—Anderson Bulletin.
